When it rains where you live, a lot of water flows over the land into a river, a lake, or some other body of water near your home. There is a large area of land that all drains to the same body of water. This is your water shed.

Are you in a watershed?

Finish these four steps to complete this mission!

1. What is the name of the watershed you live in?

2. Rainfall picks up trash, chemicals, and pollutants and flows into a storm sewer or directly to a body of water. Anything that enters a storm sewer flows directly into bodies of water we use for swimming, fishing & drinking. Draw a map of your state and color in the watershed. Draw in the bodies of water

3. Draw in the bodies of water and add a dot to show where you are at on the map.

4. Take this map back to your JMG teacher and explain what a watershed is!
